    Great for £7.99

    I have short, chunky legs and a wholesome booty for a bloke so it's difficult to get shorts that are the right waist size without being too long. I decided to take a punt on these shorts (being so cheap) and must say that overall they are the best pair I have ever owned. They're light, which is great for me because I get hot quite easily. They're a good fit for my waist (34") but not too long - they're just above the knee on me. There's one minor problem that another reviewer also mentioned, which is that the waistband seems to lose it's elasticity after a couple of washes. But it's nothing that a belt couldn't put right and for £7.99 I decided to order another two pairs.

    Forclaz Shorts
    Lightweight, good pocket Poor construction quality

    The waistband lost all of its elasticity after one day of use. The shorts are now far too big and unwearable. Otherwise the shorts seem to be fine. Decathlon just needs to fix the serious issue of the quality of the elastic. Very disappointed.

    Brand's answer :


    Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 50 hiking short. Sorry to hear about the troubles you have has with the elastic and sizing. Please drop into your local store where a member of our team will be able to resolve the issue and we can take a look at the waistband's elasticity.

    Many thanks
